    Heat Gun or your wifes hair dryer. then use a plastic Bondo spreader to work at it, to get the corner up.

      you can use a razaorblade but you must first bend (dull)

      it on glass in one direction then when you use it you can not flip it over you can only use the one side.The heat gun trick only works on fresh vinyl.You would then

      use xylene(tolulene) to remove the adhesive.Poeple pay me good money to take decals off their cars , boats.

          The suggestion I made was for a handy person..If you are not a handy with a blade do not attempt to try.Pay someone who can.

              If you go to a paint and body supply store, they have an aresol can of vynal letter remover, i cant remember the name brand of that the kind i had. You spray it on, wait 5-10 min. and it rubs right off, a soft edged spatcula worked real good. It takes off adhesive and all, and is paint and gel coat safe. This stuff is like a miracle

                a new razorblade with windex as a lubricant works very well. Try on a piece of window glass first to get feel for it.
